AVON // Facial Cleansing Brush *



Pri samom kraju Novembra, stigao mi je jos jedan paketic od AVON-a. Ako me pratite na Facebook-u, znate vrlo dobro koliko sam se samo obradovala ovoj cetki za ciscenje lica. Ista je novitet, te se nije prije pojavljivala u katalozima. Jako mi je drago sto mi je pruzena mogucnost da je isprobam i da vam svima prenesem svoje utiske. Malo je reci da je ovo bilo divno iznenadjenje!

----------

At the very end of November, I received another package from AVON. If you follow me on Facebook, you know very well how excited I was to get the Facial Cleansing Brush. It's a new product that wasn't available in previous catalogues. I'm so happy that I've had the opportunity to try it out and to tell you all what I think about it. To say this was a lovely surprise isn't enough!



Sadrzaj kutije je slijedeci: (1) cetka; (2) silikonski dodatak; (3) najlonski dodatak; (4) postolje; (5) uputstvo za koristenje. Ova elektronska cetka se ne puni, vec ce vam biti potrebne dvije AA baterije da bi radila ono za sta je namijenjena. Pregradje za baterije je jako cvrsto i potrebna je mala kolicina sile da bi se otkljucalo. Ono sto cu vam odmah reci je da je u ovom slucaju bitno procitati upute za koristenje jer je ilustracijom objasnjeno koliko dugo se treba tretirati odredjeni dio lica. Ja na pocetku nisam obratila paznju na to i jako sam iziritirala kozu na bradi prilikom koristenja najlonskog dodatka za dubinsko ciscenje. Jednim klikom na rozo dugme se pali prva brzina obrtanja, a jos jednim druga - znaci mozete birati izmedju dvije brzine u zavisnosti koja vam vise odgovara. 

Kada odaberete dodatak koji zelite iskoristiti, a vise o njima cete moci procitati ispod, vrlo lako se postavljaju na cetku tako sto se spajaju laganim pritiskom dok se ne cuje klik. Cvrsto su fiksirani dok ih ne zelite skinuti tako sto ih malo jace povucete sa cetke. Prije spajanja potrebno je nakvasiti dodatak. Nakon toga mozete direktno na dodatak staviti proizvod koji inace koristite za ciscenje lica. Ja koristim cvrsti sapun tako da ga ipak nanosim na lice rukama, a zatim krecem sa ciscenjem cetkom. Prilikom ciscenja lica, cetku treba samo prisloniti na kozu i ne pritiskati jer ono uzrokuje zastajkivanje u obrtajima.

Cetku lagano pomijerajte kruznim tokom: 20 sekundi na celu; 10 sekundi na nosu; 10 sekundi na bradi; i po 10 sekundi na obrazima.

[ Cijena ove cetke u trenutnom katalogu iznosi 32,90 KM, a inace je 49,00 KM. ]

The contents of the box are: (1) facial cleansing brush; (2) silicone head; (3) nylon head; (4) base; (5) instruction manual. This electronic brush isn't charged, so you will need two AA batteries in order for it to do what it's meant for. The battery compartment is very secure and you need a small amount of force in order to unlock it. What I will say right off the bat is that, in this case, it's very important to read the instruction manual because in it you will find an illustration explaining how long each section of the face is meant to be treated. The first time I used the brush I didn't pay attention to that and I ended up irritating the skin on my chin very badly while using the nylon head for deep cleansing. One click on the pink button will turn the device onto the first available spinning speed, and another one will turn on the second speed - so you can choose between two spinning speeds depending on which one you prefer.

When you chose the head that you want to use, and you can read more about them below, it's very easy to put them onto the brush by connecting them using light pressure until you hear a click. They are tight and secure until you want to remove them by using a bit of force to pull them off. Before connecting the head to the brush, you need to run it under water. After that, you can apply your facial cleanser directly to the brush head. I use a solid soap so I lather it onto my face using my hands before going in with the brush. While cleansing your face, you only need to keep the brush head flush to the skin without pressing because that will impede the spinning motion and reduce effectiveness.

Slowly move the brush using circular motions: 20 seconds on the forehead; 10 seconds on the nose; 10 seconds on the chin; and 10 seconds on each cheek.






Silikonski dodatak je namijenjen za svakodnevno koristenje. Pomocu njega cete njezno otkloniti necistoce i odumrle celije sa koze. Ako nemate jako osjetljivu kozu, sa ovim dodatkom mozete prekoraciti nekoliko sekundi sa koristenjem bez ikakvih poslijedica. Nisam imala nikakva losa iskustva sa silikonskim dodatkom i jako ga je ugodno koristiti jer u isto vrijeme masira kozu i podstice cirkulaciju. Nakon koristenja, koza je jako meka na dodir. Kada zavrsite sa ciscenjem potrebno je odmah skinuti dodatak i isprati ga pod vodom, zatim ga ostaviti da se susi na zraku. Ja licno volim i da ga pospricam sa sredstvom za dezinfekciju.

The silicone head is meant for everyday use. Using it will help to gently remove impurities and dead skin cells. If your skin isn't very sensitive, you can get away with using it a few more seconds than stated above without any consequences. I haven't had any bad experiences with the silicone head and it's very pleasant to use as it gives you a nice face massage and promotes circulation. After you're done using it, you'll notice that your skin is very soft to the touch. When the cleansing is finished, you should remove the head immediately and wash it out, then place it somewhere to air dry. Personally, I like to also spray it with a disinfection agent.






Najlonski dodatak je po mojoj preporuci namijenjen za dubinsko ciscenje lica jednom sedmicno, maksimalno dva puta ako nemate nimalo osjetljivu kozu. Iako dlacice na ovom dodatku nisu uopce krute na dodir, ja sam uspjela izgrebati bradu jer sam je tu drzala duze od preporucenih 10 sekundi. Pomocu najlonskog dodatka mozete odraditi uspjesnu eksfolijaciju koze i jako se dobro pokazala u borbi protiv mitesera i prosirenih pora na mom licu, posebno na podrucju nosa. Naravno, i za ovaj dodatak vazi kao i za prethodni sto se tice ispiranja i susenja.

The nylon head, in my opinion, should be used for deep cleansing once a week, maybe twice if your skin isn't at all sensitive. Even though the bristles on this brush head aren't rigid or stiff to the touch, I managed to scratch the skin on my chin while using it longer than the recommended 10 seconds. With the help of the nylon head you can easily exfoliate your skin and it's proven to be very effective in the fight against blackheads and enlarged pores on my face, especially the nose area. Of course, same goes for this one as far as rinsing and drying goes.


Za kraj imam podijeliti sa vama jedan nekonvencionalan nacin koristenja silikonske cetke. Kao sto mozete primjetiti na fotografiji, moze se koristiti zajedno sa kremom za lice. Igrom slucaja mi je nestalo one koju inace koristim u tu svrhu (Essence My Skin) tako da sam uslikala Avene Cleanance K, ali ne preporucujem nju za ovo buduci da je potrebna jako mala kolicina ove kreme da bi se prekrilo cijelo lice, a i nije jeftina da se baca. 

Dakle, na kozu mozete nanijeti vecu kolicinu dnevne ili nocne kreme nego inace i iskoristiti silikonski dodatak da bi je dobro umasirali u kozu, pogotovo na dijelove lica gdje mozda imate problema sa suhocom ili sa borama. Ovo isto tako osigurava hidrataciju koze na vecem nivou. Nakon zavrsetka tretmana, ostatak kreme sa lica pokupite sa navlazenom vaticom. Koza bi vam instantno trebala izgledati zdravije, zivlje i njegovano.

----------

To conclude, I have an unconventional way of using the silicone brush head to share with you. As you can see in the photo, you can use it with a face cream. I happened to run out of the one I normally use for this purpose (Essence My Skin) so you can see the Avene Cleanance K gel cream in the photo, but I wouldn't recommend using that one for this because you only need a small amount to cover your whole face, and it's not exactly cheap to throw away product.

So, you can apply a more generous amount of moisturizer than usual to your skin and use the silicone brush head to really massage it into the skin, especially in the areas of your face where you might be experiencing some dryness or fine lines / wrinkles. This method ensures skin hydration on a larger scale. After finishing the treatment, you can remove the excess product from your face using a moist cotton pad. Your skin should instantly look healthier, livelier and nourished.
